This Wednesday, August 13th, 2014 from 9pm until midnight (or later) it’s CRAFTNIGHT!!!
Processing Fee: $2
$4 Drink Special: I think we have some new ones, we need you in here for “quality control” on verifying this statement, won’t you visit?
It’s kind of getting hot, wouldn’t you agree? It’s the type of hot where the sun’s rays shine down on one of your arms, and it practically feels like the sun is trying to dissect your arm. These are ultra-summer sunshine rays, almost prickly with an invasive intrusive “I AM THE SUN, DAMMIT!!!” kind of vibe that’s beyond scary. Friends from out of town think you’re categorically insane to live here, they do not understand Hot August Heat in Los Angeles.
We specialize in co-existing with the sun here in our vast metropolis! Observe the tiny senior citizens bopping around town with their parasols and giant visor hats and wrap-around sunglasses, they totally know what they’re doing.
We want you to be prepared, because the hotter it gets, the more our city’s air-conditioning hits an all-time absent-minded high, and the stuff is blowing out vents so voraciously, you develop rock formations in your nostrils. And then brown-outs and black-outs plague the city.
When this happens, take out your NUMBER ONE FAN that you painted at CraftNight! This handy-dandy keepsake will always offer a bit of relief from the stagnant smoggy air surrounding you in the wake of a traffic jam with no AC, or just when you’re standing around in line for “Let’s Make a Deal” outside CBS Studios.
You can really go any way you want with this wooden fan, you can go über fancy, or put quippy little messages on it, draw faces all over it, make one for a friend, there are unbounded possibilities. We’ve made the foldy paper fans before, but not these, they remind me of something you’d use at some kind of revival in an old-timey dance hall.
Also we seem to be following some kind of trend in making crafts that are weirdly useful, a flavor of the month I usually renounce on principal in the age of artisan mustard and brill creme made from goldfish tears, so get it while it lasts.
See you at the Craft Table,
